Favorite Foreign Flicks: The Chaser

Korean film The Chaser is one of my favorite films coming out of Asia recently. It's already being remade by William Monahan (Departed) and Leonardo DiCaprio, so that says something about it. The movie is as suspenseful as Manhunter or Silence of The Lambs, it even has a bit of Taken thrown in there. It focuses on a ex-cop who is now a pimp and his girls start disappearing. This leads him to a murderous client but the police don't believe one of the girls is still alive. The ex-cop starts a frantic search knowing she's in trouble.
